INTRODUCTION OF NEW MEMBERS

Bob O'Driscoll introduced CEPAC's new members (terms commencing July 1, 2005): Michelle Larsen and Mary Engel (representing Secretarial/clerical), Steve Burk (representing Classified Professional) and Janae Heap - absent (representing Technical/Paraprofessional). CEPAC existing members introduced themselves to Michelle, Mary and Steve, and welcomed them to CEPAC.

ELECTION OF OFFICERS FOR FY06

The process for electing officers, together with the options for filling a vacancy should an elected officer not complete the term, was reviewed as per the By Laws (see below). Bonnie White reported on the work of the Nominating Committee: Bonnie had identified each CEPAC member (existing and new) with sufficient term remaining to serve as Chair or Chair-Elect. She had endeavored to contact each person describing the officers' duties and commitments and inviting their inclusion on the ballot. Bonnie had prepared a ballot with the resulting names and left space for nominations from the floor. Bob O'Driscoll opened the process to nominations from the floor. There being none, Sheron McIlhattan moved that nominations be closed. Ray Byerly seconded and the motion passed with Genevieve Burmeister standing for Chair, and Michelle Larson for Chair-Elect. A paper ballot was conducted and Genevieve and Michelle were unanimously elected into the respective positions.
